The source confirmed to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com that the Nationals signed a one-year agreement with Kyle Schwab and waited for a physical examination. The club has not confirmed the transaction.
Schwab added strength to the lineup around Juan Soto. The Nationals have settled twice in this offseason and added Josh Bell through trade at the end of December.
After six seasons in the club̵
Since the national league teams are working under the assumption that there will not be a universal designated batsman this year, Schwab will play his normal position on the left court. This probably means that Soto will play the right role-his place among minors. Soto played on the left in his debut because Bryce Harper was the team’s right fielder, and when Harper left for the Phillys, He has stayed in that position. Manager Dave Martinez led Soto in a Grand Slam for the first time in the last six games of the 2020 regular season.
Since 2017, Schwab has scored above average -29 in the left field, second only to Matt Kemp (-32).
